p.2 Toronto, Feb. 22nd - 1,420 vessels arrived in the harbour last year and 1,156 sailed outward.

The Maritime Court of Ontario is now completely organized. A sitting will be held in the Court House. The officers of the Court are: Marshal, Capt. W. Boyd; and Registrar, Mr. J. Bruce, barrister.

p.3 Belleville Harbour - Mr. J.S. McCuaig writes to the Belleville City Council suggesting "that an effort be made to secure a grant from the Dominion Government for the purpose of aiding the city in the completion of the dredging of the harbour." Mr. McCuaig says "a great deal of difficulty was experienced last season in getting the Montreal steamers in and out of the harbour of Belleville in consequence of the shallow water. With the least wind from the west they were unable to turn - the depth of water being so limited - and serious delay was the consequence."
